A Last Will and Testament, often just called a "will," is a special paper that a person writes to say what they want to happen with their things after they pass away. It tells who should get their stuff, like money, belongings, and property. It can also say who should take care of their kids if they're not around anymore. (Name a guardian for minor children, name a guardian for your pets, list how to distribute your property, and name an executor)
A revocable living trust is a legal arrangement made by a person to manage their belongings and property. It's a bit like a special container where they put their things so that they are taken care of while they're alive and can be given to specific people or used in certain ways after they pass away. The person who creates the trust can change or cancel it if they want. This trust is often used to avoid some complications that can happen with regular wills when it comes to sharing belongings and property. (List property and distribute, transfer property into the trust, and name a successor trustee to manage your trust)
Beneficiary designations are instructions that a person gives to say who should get their things, like money or other belongings, when they're no longer around.

A durable power of attorney is a special legal paper that lets a person choose someone they trust to make decisions for them if they can't make those decisions on their own. This person called an "attorney-in-fact" or "agent," can handle important matters like money, property, or healthcare choices. The "durable" part means that even if the person becomes sick or unable to talk, the power of attorney still stays in effect. It's a way to make sure someone you trust can help take care of things when you can't. (choose an agent and set parameters for your agent)

(Burial, cremation, and last rites)
A kids protection plan is a comprehensive arrangement designed to ensure the well-being, care, and future of children in case something happens to their parents or guardians. This plan typically includes legal documents that outline who will be responsible for the children's care, financial support, and important decisions if the parents are unable to do so due to illness, injury, or death. It may also specify guardianship preferences, financial provisions, and guidelines for the children's upbringing, education, and healthcare. A kids protection plan offers peace of mind, safeguarding the best interests of children and providing a clear roadmap for their care in challenging circumstances.
A life and legacy interview is a meaningful conversation that captures the stories, experiences, and insights of an individual's life in a structured and intentional manner. This interview often takes place with the purpose of preserving the person's personal history, values, and wisdom for future generations. It typically covers a wide range of topics, including childhood memories, life accomplishments, significant events, relationships, lessons learned, and personal beliefs. The goal of a life and legacy interview is to create a valuable record that not only passes on family history but also provides a deeper understanding of the person's character, contributions, and the legacy they wish to leave behind.
